India condemns participation of banned terrorist outfits in Pak rallyFebruary 6th, 2009 - 2:11 pm ICT by ANI
New Delhi, Feb 6 (ANI): India has strongly condemned the license given to banned terrorist organisations on territory under Pakistan control.
Speaking to reporters here last evening, Vishnu Prakash, the spokesman of Ministry of External Affairs, said that reports of participation of banned terror outfits like Jaish-e-Muhammad, Harkat-ul-Mujahideen, Jamat-ud-Dawa at a rally in Pakistan occupied Kashmir showed the laxity of authorities in Pakistan.
“We have seen reports that representatives of terrorist groups Jaish-e-Muhammad, Harkat-ul-Mujahideen, Jamat-ud-Dawa participated in a public meeting at Muzaffarabad in Pakistan occupied Kashmir. No effort was made by the authorities to curb the activities of these groups,” said Vishnu Prakash.
Prakash also said that the month-old advisory that Pakistan is not safe for travel would remain valid as two Indian journalists had been roughed up in Lahore.
“The concerns, which led to the travel advisory of December 26, 2008 still very much exist. Indian nationals are advised that it would be unsafe for them to travel or be in Pakistan,” he added.
Meanwhile, a UN Security Council Committee has added four more Lashkar leaders to a list of people and groups facing sanctions for ties to al Qaeda or the Taliban.
The sanctions also covered what the committee said was a front for the LeT, the Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD). (ANI)
